    System not getting past post with Ram in slots A1 / B1 after reseating CPU cooler

    Recently when I turned on my computer I got a Q-code 55 memory not detected. I checked to make sure that my CPU cooler was not overly tightened, reseated both my CPU and cooler then turned on my system and got Q- code 55 again. I tried the following combinations with my memory

    G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16820231902

    Slot A2 / B2 - Q55
    Slot A1/B1- Q55
    Slot A1 - single stick q-55 with both sticks
    Slot A2- single stick q-55 with both sticks
    Slot B1- single stick both got past post booted into windows
    Slot B2- single stick both got past post booted into windows

    Before my system had been running perfectly with the memory in A2/ B2 running at 3200MHz. I used the USB Bios flashback to update from 1701 to 3401 to solve any potential new issues and also to reset the Ram speed to default. I tried all the combinations of Ram slots again with basically the same final results except this time
    when the system failed to post it would cycle through Q-codes 01-03. With a single stick of Ram in either slots B1 / B2 I can still get past Post and boot into windows. Any ideas on what I should try next I'm out of ideas?

    Check the CPU closely for bent or broken pins.
